year. so after 2013 there is no promise from obama for any american on any tax protection. he's open to raising taxes on anyone and everyone. and he's going to have to because even with his tax increases on the higher income people, he runs a $6.7 trillion debt over the next decade. and that buffett rule tax raises less than 1% of the debt he's running up. he's got to go straight at the heart of the middle class to pay for his bigger government. >> i think it's very interesting. i still have not heard from mr. norquist whether any tax increases should be necessary to deal with the budget deficit and the budget deficit we face as a country. are we going to try to do this all through spending cuts? and if so, how in the world do we do it without eviscerating medicare, medicaid, social security, and military spending? >> well, very clearly as you know, the republicans actually have a plan written down as opposed to obama and the democrats who have no plan to balance the budget written down. the republicans passed through the house paul ryan's budget. paul ryan does for all the welfare p

makers. the numbers i take at face value your honor obama and the same way i did for the republicans in power the previous eight years. this is like the criticism i received from hilda solis, it was considered softball. why i didn't ask her why she isn't following up on governor romney's idea, we might create 4 million jobs. that's hardball, not softball. what's good is good, no matter who is in office. those numbers were good. not much more to it anyone who says i am being partisan is out of their mind. what a shame that the charge can be even made, let alone made by people i respect. honestly, people, more to life than who wins in november. stay with cramer. i love you, james. don't you love me? i'm a robot. i know. i know you're a robot! but there's more in you than just circuits and wires! uhhh.

to turn over with potential tax increases into next year. the energy call is pretty customary. clearly the obama administration would like to pursue more regulatory policies towards traditional energies where the romney administration would certainly be more friendly towards traditional energy which is a bigger part of the s&p 500 index. financials would benefit under a romney administration due to the perception that some of the more onerous components of dodd-frank may not come to light. >> the financials have had many, many months to prepare for dodd-frank. they know what's coming down the pike. so is it going to make that much of a difference in an obama administration even in an environment where the overall health of the market improves, the economy improves, so financials may do better regardless of who is president next? >> may but i think financials are going to struggle in an environment where investment sensitivity is -- investment spending is starting to deteriorate. one of the other big key takeaways from our survey was just the impact of the current administratio

upside for next year. >> is there a point at which you see obama in the polls and you say actually now i believe that we are going to get the tax hikes and the market should fall? there must be a watershed quite soon as we head towards particularly what happens in the house and the senate. >> our focus has been on the senate. we think that's what's going to mostly influence the outcome. i hope there's appetite to see the rates low. i don't see a benefit from raising them. i would call a coin toss on the senate outcome. but wiser minds will see the wisdom of helping the fed in its efforts to stimulate asset prices by not onerously raising taxes on the most important asset class other than homes. >> have you actually calculated a number? you said it would give back some of the rally. but is there a number or a percentage? >> 12-month price target is 1,500. we've written in our research that 1,600 would be a reasonable 2013 end. i need to see an acceleration in global growth. >> contingent on both, not just the tax issue? >> both. somewhere between 1,500 and 1,600. >> david, thank you for b
